Lewis, Jason. "Rendition: Did UK Play Secret Role?" Telegraph (London), 25 Feb. 2012. [http://www.telegraph.co.uk]
"Classified documents, seen by The Sunday Telegraph, suggest Parliament has been repeatedly misled by ministers about the extent of British intelligence officials' involvement" in American-run redition operations. "The papers outline how MI6 provided key intelligence and support for the transfer" of Abdelhakim Belhadj to Tripoli in March 2004. "They show that, in direct contradiction to assurances given by successive governments," the British airbase at Diego Garcia "was apparently used as a key staging post for the CIA programme."
